I am an Ultra-Conservative, Alpha-Male, True Authentic Leader, Type "C" Personality, who is very active in my community; whether it is donating time, clothes or money for Project Concern or going to Common Council meetings and voicing my opinions. As a blogger, I intend to provide a different viewpoint "The way I see it!" on various world, national and local issues with a few helpful tips & tidbits sprinkled in.
As Governor Scott Walker and Governor Chris Christie show you will not be loved or liked all that much to make the hard tough right choices. I just wish my former friend and others would see that. All they see is the little bit of personal money they are losing and missing the big picture that this is good for all of Wisconsin. It is sad that they are like that.
Again I reached out to my former friend and again just name-calling, hostility, anger and misguided emotions from him. After the elections I will share many of my conservations with him in hope that they reach him or help others.

New Jersey Governor Chris Christie 'Not Looking to be Loved'
WASHINGTON, D.C. - New Jersey Governor Chris Christie says his record in the Garden State is evidence that divided government doesn't have to mean gridlock, when leaders make the right "tough choices."
“When you're looking for love in this job, that's when deficits get run up," Christie said. "When you're looking for love in this job, it's because you can't say no to anything because someone somewhere won't love you if you do."
Christie said he was "not looking to be loved" in his state, recounting his administration's cuts to veterans' programs, education, and public employee benefits; examples of so called "third-rails" in politics. The Republican called the slashed budgets "common sense reforms, but tough ones."
"They said this was going to be impossible to do but we did it," he continued, "And we did it because we went out to the public and we told them why it was so important."
Christie boasted his budget plans eventually drew the support of his democratic-controlled state legislature, including its leadership.
"Don't tell me the American people are not ready to hear the truth. They know our government's out of control, they know our debt and our deficits are out of control. And don't confuse them liking the solution with accepting it."
Christie said when presented with the facts, voters "know in their heart" to accept the right solution.
According to Christie, his administration is set to return $132 billion in budget savings over 30 years, while delivering the first income tax break for New Jersey residents in over a decade.
